Construction: Strong Mahogany planking  fastened with Everdure  screws to close spaced frames. Chubasco received a full restoration in 1990-1996 with change of all the planking and wooden structures.


Total sleeping places: two double beds + double settee + two bunks = 8. In warm weather two more could sleep in the cockpit given the size of the seats.The layout is simply realized, but has a wide and airy look, perfect for warm climate. Nice original parts of furniture and bronze fittings make living inside pleasant. Many storage places.

 As you enter the companionway you find to starboard in this order the following: the galley, a sette with a bunk on top of it, a bathroom and then the fore cabin. Further to the bow is the anchor locker which you can access from that cabin.

 As you enter the companionway you find to port in this order the following: the navigation table, a bench belonging to the settee with a bunk on top, a closet with drawers and a long door to a little closet (this is just in front of the bathroom) and then the fore cabin. This "strait" between closet/drawers and the bathroom make it possible to close the cabin using the same door of the little closet.

The settee table lowers down on two "feet" and the back rest cushions turn into the mattress of the table. It gets used as a double bed. One of the two bunks is a bit narrow (port side) but ok for kids or smaller persons.

Entering the stern owners` cabin, you find a bathroom to starboard and a desk to port. The "chair" for the desk is a long board that comes out from under the bed and sits on the stairs. Pretty comfortable.  A wide bed is on the stern part of the cabin .
